How to Tie the Uni Knot
The Uni Knot is an easy go-to fisherman’s knot and it’s the only knot I use when fishing inshore for trout, reds, flounder, drum, and sheepshead. I have tied this knot thousands upon thousands of times and it has been really successful for me. Not only is it great for tying to the eyes of jigheads and swivels, but it is also used to join two lines together.
Step 1. Pass the line through the eye of the hook and bring the tag end parallel to the mainline. Leave yourself 6-8″ of tag line to work with
Step 2. Make a loop with the tag and place it behind the doubled line
Step 3. Now turn the tag end around the doubled line 7 times for monofilament or fluorocarbon, 10-12 times for braid
